COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black opaque ale with rich creamy roasted malt character and a very mild hop complement. This beer may look a little scary but take a sip and youíll see why this Extra Stout can convert even lite beer drinkers to Stout lovers. A unique flavor profile that starts with a slight coffee flavor and finishes with a hint of roasty chocolate. Try a pint with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. This beer is a favorite as a compliment to any dessert or as a hearty breakfast drink.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 For my birthday my girlfriend gave me 30 beers with 30 memories incorporated into the name. This one was Strohs Steelhead Stout. Named after the crazy boozy rum that turned me bright red and made me hallucinate. She asked when I wanted to wake up the next morning and I replied, The internet. Anyways, that stuff is good and this beer is better.

Pours jet black color with a large beige head. Chocolaty sweet aroma, lots of malts, subtle hop notes and faint coffee. Flavor is also chocolaty, sweet malty, some faint vanilla notes, mellow coffee bitterness and caramel. Very thick malty body, sweet finish. Very nice and tasty.

Very good stout. On the verge of thick like other strong stouts but not too much. Rich malty, nut and grain flavors. Really nice carbonation and good bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tomgorm (47) - maroubra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2016
Not a stout drinker, but this had a great array of flavours. Poured very dark with aromas of coffee and chocolate. Actual bitterness is not at all intimidating, and initial flavours include a softer fruit and spice behind the mocha. Iím not converted but itís very drinkable.

kajser27 (1075) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 24, 2016
Pitch black colored, opaque, small to non dark tan head, non lasting. Aroma is of dark chocolate and roasted malt, coffee. Taste is medium to light sweet malt, chocolate, bitter chocolate and roasted malt, dry bitter chocolate low+ bitter finish, lasting aftertaste. Medium bodied, soft to flat carbonation, creamy. Easy going and quite enjoyable. (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

Nothing special. I'm new to the style so maybe try again once I get more stouts under my belt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really nice stout. Chocolate bouquet before a murky black and tan pour. Lovely soft mouth feel and plenty of chocolate and vanilla. Hints of coddee and roast malts with a long creamy sweet finish
